The Werribee Street, Werribee level crossing will be removed by building a new rail bridge over Werribee Street. The rail bridge will allow for both freight and passenger trains and will be about one kilometre long.
This design enhances the significant upgrades that are already underway at Wyndham Park and will open the space below the rail line for the community to enjoy.
The removal of this level crossing will improve travel for the 20,000 vehicles that travel through this crossing daily, which is a key connection between Werribee and Wyndham Vale.
We’re continuing to set up our site, with construction set to begin in the coming months. The Werribee Street level crossing is expected to be removed in 2022.
For regular information about the progress of this project, sign up for email updates.
On behalf of the Victorian Government, the Level Crossing Removal Project is overseeing the removal of 75 dangerous and congested level crossings across Melbourne by 2025.
